In 2006 TRUCE put its focus on limited edition book production with the very unique series called TRUCE DIARIES. We give artists and bands empty journals and they give us a glimpse what their life looks like behind closed doors. The first diary was released with the swiss industrial pioneers, The Young Gods. The diary was sold out within a few months. In 2008 we will release our second diary with the dutch cultband the Nits. What makes this book really special is that a recording is enclosed in the book and the tracks have been specially recorded for this diary!
In addition to the diary release, we are also puting out a new 140 page Volume (5) with a special feature on artist extraordinaire Gottfried Helnwein. We will cover the theme of darkness - absence of light.

Stähli is an internationally acclaimed graphic designer and art director, his creative output has been spread troughout the world.

Blueprint #276 March 2009

Posted: Februar 25th, 2009 | Author: dk | Filed under: Architecture, Design | 11 Comments »

The results of Newcastle’s neighbourhood regeneration competition – Scotswood Expo - form the backbone of issue 276. // JULES WRIGHT, ex-theatre director, muses on the process of converting her favourite disused power station into a unique, and highly successful, arts venue, now known as the Wapping Project. // GARY HUSTWIT, the Californian filmmaker behind last year’s surprise hit Helvetica (a film about a font) discusses his next project: Objectified, a film about industrial design. And we report on the recently unveiled Photographer’s Gallery in its new Soho location. Elsewhere in this issue: Herbert Wright thinks Dubai may be beginning to resemble a real city at last in Comment; Donald Trump and Hoskins Architects make unlikely bedfellows on a controversial golf village project in View; Guy Bird sends A Letter from Detroit; and the delightful Steven Appleby shares his vision of London in Paper City.

About 
With a 25-year track record as the leading magazine for architecture and design, Blueprint is regarded by many around the world as the original design magazine. Following the magazine’s recent relaunch, it was described by The Observer newspaper as the ‘design bible’. Blueprint’s award-winning design sets it apart from other magazines. Published monthly, it is lovingly produced in large format on the best quality paper, with photography and illustration of the highest standard. But its long-standing appeal is also due to the finest criticism, news and feature writing on design and architecture, directed at professionals and non-professionals, alike. The magazine takes a parallel approach to the different design disciplines, reflecting a belief that fashion, product, furniture and architectural design can share ideas. As editor Vicky Richardson says: ‘Blueprint aims to use the subject of design to reveal the workings of society. The magazine is about the important role that design and architecture can play in shaping the world.’

About
Since the inception of 10 Magazine in 2001, I have strived to create an unashamedly inspirational, luxury fashion and beauty magazine. 10 Magazine offers an unrivalled environment for the fashion industry’s most creative and respected photographers and stylists to exist and provides them with a platform in which they can truly indulge and evolve their ideas. The writers contributing to 10 Magazine are a veritable “who’s who” from within the fashion press, and range from global broadsheet newspaper writers to bestselling authors.10 Magazine is now also a globally successful magazine, following the launch of 10 Russia. The clamour for all things luxurious and beautiful is at its height in Russia, and so the magazine was an instant success.
My aim from the outset was to create a quarterly magazine that showcased the spring, summer, autumn and winter trends within an unparalleled environment, always striving to be unique. And now, the summer and winter issues also capture the key trends in the evergrowing cruise and pre-collection fashions.
In a market oversaturated with celebrity obsession, I have always maintained a focus on fashion that is shot beautifully and supplemented with exclusive interviews, groundbreaking editorial features and powerful, opinionated journalism. This has resulted in 10 Magazine becoming the most renowned voice in the world of fashion and luxury.10 Magazine is an independent, free-thinking and credible luxury fashion magazine among a plethora of formulaic, celebrity-obsessed publications. It has therefore become the most revered title in the directional market-place today and will remain at the forefront of the fashion world for many years to come. - Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou (Editor-In-Chief)

About
“Wired is a full-color monthly American magazine and on-line periodical, published since March 1993, that reports on how technology affects culture, the economy, and politics. Owned by Condé Nast Publications, it is published in San Francisco, California.
Wired’s editorial stance was originally inspired by the ideas of Canadian media theorist Marshall McLuhan, credited as the magazine’s “patron saint” in early colophons. Wired has both been admired and disliked for its strong libertarian principles and enthusiastic embrace of techno-utopianism, based on it’s founder’s belief that technology can change the world. Each issue reflects the magazines readership through innovative, sometimes experimental design, which often includes the use of fluorescent and metallic inks.


From 1998 to 2006, Wired magazine and Wired News (which publishes at Wired.com) had separate owners. However, throughout that time, Wired News remained responsible for reprinting Wired magazine’s content online, due to a business agreement made when Condé Nast purchased the magazine (but not the website). In July 2006, Condé Nast announced an agreement to buy Wired News for $25 million, reuniting the magazine with its website.” -Wired Magazine

About
“How and why a magazine called the Brooklands Gazette made it to the bookstalls in 1924 is lost in the shadows, but it’s certain that its next decade was a rocky time. Renaming itself Motor Sport in 1925 was a sensible move, but under a dozen different owner-editors it stumbled on, making no money. Yet the enthusiastically random mixture of contents gave it a life of its own, veering from Grands Prix to club trials, testing cars, boats and even aircraft, interviewing the famous, the forgotten and the frankly anonymous. Some issues failed to appear and in 1929 it briefly ceased altogether. When in 1936 the last of these private helmsmen had had enough and could not pay the print bill, he gave the title to the printers, whose MD passed it to his son to run.The son was Wesley J Tee, who was to turn the title round.

A regular contributor to the magazine was freelance motoring writer Bill Boddy, whose first story in Motor Sport had been on the history of Brooklands – written in 1930. WJT sacked the ineffectual editor and asked WB to run it, beginning a partnership which saw the magazine rise to a position of immense influence by the 1960s. WB’s only precept was that he would include anything which interested him, so as well as racing and road tests, Motor Sport talked about model cars, speed limits and ancient motoring history, while the burgeoning classifieds became the only place to sell a sporting car. Boddy’s encyclopaedic knowledge of the arcane byways of his subject made the mag a vital historical archive; indeed, without WB’s passion many of the vintage cars that race today would never have been rescued. Why just the initials? Because WJT, fearful other titles might poach his staff, forbade names in the magazine, a tradition which lasted until the 1990s.

When war came Mr Tee planned to shut the mag, but WB persuaded him to keep it going, running it by ’phone and filling it with history and motoring memories. He even managed a road test while a dog-fight raged overhead. Paper was rationed, but Mr Tee printed ration books… While working at the Royal Aircraft Establishment WB met Denis Jenkinson, and, impressed by his knowledge and no-nonsense attitude, asked him to write for MS. It proved a memorable partnership. Jenks became our Continental Correspondent, roaming Europe all summer, visiting race teams in between GPs and sending back lively, incisive reports which became the definitive analysis of the sport.

In London WB combined detailed automotive history with road tests of everything new, from Maserati to Citroën 2CV, championing small car economy long before today’s crises. At a time when the motoring press was innately deferential, Motor Sport’s criticism, whether of cars, teams or drivers, was utterly fearless, resulting in test car bans and court cases, in which Mr Tee always backed WB and DSJ completely even if it meant losing advertising. Meanwhile WB created the 750MC, helped inspire the ground-breaking 500cc movement, and founded the Brooklands Society, fostering an interest which would save the world’s first race track. Despite moving to Wales WB continued to be the magazine’s figurehead, only giving up the title of Editor in 1991, to become Founder Editor – not accurate, but appropriate for one who formed the title’s character.

When WJT died in 1996, aged 90, Teesdale was bought by Haymarket and became a purely historic title, but in 2006 it again went private, returned to London, resumed the green cover and began a new era of fearless commentary on Grand Prix racing. And remarkably, Bill Boddy still writes every month – at 95, continuing the world’s longest journalistic career.”- Motor Sport Magazine
